KSW 55 takes place this Saturday, October 10 live from Lodz, Poland and live around the world on www.KSWTV.com.
The UK’s Scott Askham (19-4) defends his middleweight title against the legendary Mamed Khalidov (34-7-2) in what is a rematch of their clash from KSW 52 last December. Khalidov, the former champion and king of KSW, is looking to prove he still has what it takes to compete with the best at 40-years-old while Askham is aiming to solidify himself as the best middleweight in Europe.
The co-main event will see the return of Aleksandar ‘The Joker’ Ilic (12-3) as he takes on former champion Michal Materla (28-7)in what should be an explosive affair. Both men have thirty combined stoppage victories and are known for their fight ending power.
Also on the card Olympic medalist Damian Janikowski (4-3) welcomes undefeated Swedish fighter Andreas Gustafsson (6-0) to the promotion, KSW reality TV show winner Tomasz Romanowski (9-7) faces top Romanian fighter Ion Surdu (10-2), TUF 28’s Przemyslaw Mysiala (23-10-1) meets Croatian veteran Stjepan Bekavac (19-10), and RIZIN veteran Sylwia Juskiewicz (9-5)will face Karolina Wojcik (6-2) in the opening bout of the night.
